Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort officially reopened on July 19th, 2021. During the past year+, the Disney Vacation Club section of the resort has been open along with shops, some restaurants, pools, etc. But now the new “Moana” themed rooms are available for guests as is ‘Ohana and Trader Sams Grog Grotto!
Yesterday I was invited to tour a new room (and a suite I’ll post in a different article) and I have photos and a full video below. Jeff and I each have stayed at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort since the 1970s and so much has changed over the years. The “Moana” rooms are beautiful and I look forward to eventually staying in one.
Here is our video and then photos.
My first stop was room #1215.
Back in March, the Disney Parks Blog stated, “These reimagined spaces feature a new color palette inspired by the Pacific Ocean and its many islands, including details, patterns and textures from the hit Walt Disney Animation Studios film “Moana’”
One thing I have always loved about the rooms at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is the size. 415+ square feet gives a nice amount of room to move about in.
There are stools at the front of the bed and floral decorative pillows.
The purple design gives a nice pop of color to the room. And there is “Moana” theming everywhere.
“Moana” artwork is on the wall next to this bed.
There is nice texture in the headboards and drawers.
Here is a look at the light between the beds.
This lamp is fun, it includes Gramma Tala, Pua and Moana.
Hei Hei and Maui are also here.
Patterns can be seen in the chair.
Two unique tables sit close by.
Two chairs sit on the patio outside the room.
Here is a look back at the room. You can see the wood flooring in this photo.
There is a sleeper couch here with “Moana” patterns with characters behind it.
Moana is in the pattern.
Maui as well.
There is a hidden Mickey in the right hand side.
The pillows on the sleeper sofa include a turtle.
Here is a close-up on a pillow.
There are drawers below the television.
Check out the ceiling lamp pattern.
Hei Hei peeks out behind the Keurig machine.
Keurig coffees and teas are in the drawer, along with cups.
A mini-fridge is below.
Here is a look at the bathroom sinks.
H20 products are a favorite with guests. The shampoo and conditioner are in large containers in the shower.
Artwork in the bathroom includes Moana.
There are patterns in the shower tile.
H20 shampoo, conditioner and body wash are in pumps on the wall.
Here is a look at the closet.
The safe is inside.
And here is a look at the room when curtains are closed (this was the room next door, which is a mirror image of 1215).
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is already popular with guests and the “Moana” themed rooms are certain to be even more so!
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort opened on October 1st, 1971 with Walt Disney World and the refurbished monorail platform and new front entrance are scheduled to reopen this year.
